Two chayotes came in the mail today for my daughter. Why? Something about a friend that works for a Co-op but that doesn't matter. She's left them with me to do as I will. I read that they are like a cross between a potato and a cucumber.
"Inside each Chayote, there is one large, soft seed that can be eaten (unlike true squashes, which have many seeds). The white flesh is firmer and crisper than a cucumber, and sweeter than a zucchini would be. The flavour is actually quite bland and not that interesting."
My first thought was to look for a soup recipe - a simple Sopa de Chayote or more elaborate Sopa de Chayote y Mariscos.
Of course, YouTube has Chayote Salad.
The perfect practice for today (and every day!) - Pause for ten seconds and savor this precious moment: This is it!
Did lots of that today. Didn't do much else and it was a good day.
